New Kid On the Block
The old white barn
on Terra Dei Farm as it steadfastly weathers another winter.
The deep slow breathing of livestock in the barn… The sweet
earthy smells of fresh hay and ripe sweet corn… The beams of sunrise reflecting off of morning dew hanging on the waving pasture grass… The laughter of
small children and wagging tails of pets… The texture of old barn siding patiently waiting for new paint… Every day the atmosphere of our home floods our
senses and fills our hearts with peaceful joy and beauty. I am so excited to be blogging for Grit and sharing our farm with others who appreciate the beauty
of rural life and the timeless wisdom found in hard work and old-fashioned virtue.
